Feb. 25– U.S. Marshal Jeff Holt announced Tuesday afternoon the capture of Chico Lemont Parks, 38, who was wanted in Hardin County for rape, aggravated sexual battery of a child and solicitation of a minor.
The charges stemmed from incidents which occurred in Hardin County in December of last year. In those incidents, investigators say Parks is accused of raping an adult female and exposing himself to and touching a child. Parks is believed to have fled the Hardin County area shortly after the incidents occurred.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force received information yesterday that Parks was in the Jackson area.
